Julie grew up in Chicopee, MA and started running a few years ago. After finishing her first road race, the Doyle's Emerald Necklace Five Miler, in 2009, she insisted she would never run again. She'll be the first to tell you that running is a true addiction. Since then, she has completed 3 marathons and manages and runs with the Franklin Park Coalition B.A.A. Boston Marathon Charity Program. In the coming year, Julie will be training for the Mount Washington Road Race, her second Chicago Marathon, and the Goofy Challenge in January 2013.
